Riot Radio – Ghost – From the Pinnacle To the Pit

“You are cast out from the heavens to the ground…”

Sweden’s favorite Gospel Choir have been busy since we last checked in, officially unveiling the new Papa Emeritus, debuting a video for “Cirice” and releasing studio versions online of the new songs previously revealed live at various European Festival dates. Of the “Meliora” tracks we’ve gotten a taste of so far, our favorite has to be “From the Pinnacle To the Pit”, whose heavy bass groove, guitar and keyboard solo interplay and menacing vocal delivery have thoroughly and defiantly wormed their way into my brain and refuse to let go.

Of course Ghost’s third full length record “”Meliora” will be loosed upon the world on August 21st via Loma Vista Recordings, and the clergy will descend upon Union Transfer here in Philadelphia on September 26th, Papal visit (literally) be damned.
